Attach it to bumper

I lost my license plate when those little plastic tabs broke off somewhere in Montana. After shopping around I was told that I had to buy a new taillight assembly. I tried to find another way, but thereís almost no space to work with. So I bought some L brackets and attached them to the bumper where the stabilizer legs are. Attached the plate to them using some straight brackets. Seems much more secure now

Posts like this are the reason that I changed to the metal bracket when the Scamp was new.

Does anyone know where to get a replacement that will definitely fit?
Check on E-Trailer. You may have to buy a replacement light to get the license plate attachment. That's where I got mine. Measure your tail light and if you want a tail light of the same dimensions. They don't cost much and there's quite a variety to choose from.

Those tabs hanging from the light seem destined to bend and come loose. Wish there was a sturdier alternative. I even considered just putting the license plate in the rear window of the Scamp. thanks again for commenting.
Is it legal enough to just have it in the rear window?

I don't know what Jersey law says, but in NYS it has to have a light on it.
